Raising capital

Create Health

Adviser to Create Health, a specialist fertility clinic, on their growth capital investment from Livingbridge.

The deal

Our Corporate Finance team has successfully helped Create Health Limited (“Create”) raise £5m development capital from Livingbridge.

Create is a fertility clinic specialising in Natural and Mild IVF, based in London. Natural and Mild IVF uses lower levels of drugs and is cheaper, safer and healthier for the mother and baby. The more natural approach to IVF is more common in advanced overseas fertility markets such as Scandinavia, South Korea and Japan, and other parts of Europe.

Create was founded by Professor Geeta Nargund and Professor Stuart Campbell in 2000. Fertility services are provided from its two London clinics in Harley Street and Raynes Park. Create employs c.30 staff and delivers over 800 cycles per annum. Professors Nargund and Campbell are eminent clinicians with international reputations through their research and development of Natural, Modified and Mild IVF. The investment by Livingbridge will support Create to open a flagship clinic and centre of excellence in Central London in late 2013. It is envisaged further clinics will be opened thereafter, domestically and internationally.

“We met Clive and immediately realised that he was a consummate professional who instantly recognised the ethical dimension of the work we were doing and why it was important to make “Natural and Mild IVF” widely available. Clive took us painlessly through the complex process of securing private equity funding. We will always be grateful to them for their time and expertise in completing this deal in a remarkably short period of time.”Professor Geeta Nargund, CEO and owner of Create Health Limited.

“The team effectively managed a smooth and efficient deal process. They are credible in the industry and gave full commitment to their client with active Partner level engagement that we hear much about in the market but don’t always see to this extent, in practice. We would not think twice about working with Clive again.” Benoit Broch, Investment Director at Livingbridge.
